Kai Edwards has signed for his former club Wrexham after a four year spell with Welsh Premier League giants The New Saints.

Edwards returns to the club where he came up through the youth ranks before making two league appearances for the first team.

The dominant defender left Wrexham in 2011 and has since played for Prestatyn and Neath in the WPL before signing for The New Saints in June 2012.

But after showing fantastic progress since winning the ‘WPL Young Player of the Year’ award in 2011/12, Edwards will relish a second chance to leave his mark at the Racecourse.

In his four year stint with TNS, Edwards has won 9 trophies with the club: WPL (4), Welsh Cup (3), Word Cup (2).

Since being subbed in the final seconds of a Word Cup game at Penybont in September 2014, Edwards has been incredibly consistent for the Oswestry side, playing every second of TNS’ last 78 games in all competitions (78 matches + 2 extra times = 118 hours of football)!

He recently was named TNS’ Players’ Player of the season and Manager’s Player of the season at the club’s annual awards.

Kai Edwards is Gary Mills’ first summer signing for Wrexham after 16 players were released from the club last week.
